Kids’ wheelie good view of Tour from Fairlynch lawn
It was standing room only for children from Budleigh Salterton’s St Peter’s School when they came to Fairlynch on Thursday 11 September.
The Museum receives regular visits from schools, but on this occasion key stages took a back seat in favour of Stage 5 of the Tour of Britain.
At 11.00 am riders left The Strand in Exmouth, making their way to the race start at Clyst Hayes, just outside Budleigh. At 11.15 am off they went with 177.3 kilometres to go before the finish on Exeter High Street.
The first of many police motorcycles to arrive
Here they come!
There they go!
Austrian cyclist Matthias Brändle won the stage with a time of 04:32:03.
